I want someone to have a look at SF patch 888839 and check it in
if it looks fine. It is a one-line patch.

This solves a problem mentioned in following threads:

The first thread suggests linking with libstdc++ or hacking
distutils.sysconfig to link with g++, which doesn't feel right.

The second thread says linking with libstdc++ hack doesn't work
any more with 2.3, because 2.3 'fixed' the problem: it
autodetects C++ file and invokes nonexistent 'cc'.
